Zlatan Ibrahimovic stole the show as Manchester United saw off Southampton to win the EFL Cup on Sunday.

The Swedish legend scored one in the first half from a free-kick and a late headed winner to seal a 3-2 win despite United not being at their best.

The win helped Manchester United become the most successful English club of all time, overtaking Liverpool who have 41 major honors to their name.

Here are some of the best tweets from Twitter:


A happy Rooney jumps on Ibrahimovic as they celebrate victory.

Twitter users stayed busy before, during and after the match. Some of them also showed their frustration after wrong offside decisions were made in favour of Manchester United.

Even Zlatan Ibrahimovic mocked Arsenal and Liverpool for their lack of major trophies in recent years.

Including the Community Shield, Ibrahimovic now has two winners’ medals during his seven months in England, half as many trophies as Arsenal have collected since 2005.

Chris Smalling angers Liverpool fans with tweet.

Liverpool were forced to change their description on twitter. Their twitter bio now reads: “Official worldwide account of Liverpool FC. #LFC”.

José Mourinho’s side are sixth in the Premier League on 48 points, one point behind the Champions League qualification place, and are to play Bournemouth next at Old Trafford on Saturday, 4th march.
